I'm thinking the thread title should be changed to height & weight since so many are disclosing that.
I am 6'1" and currently weigh 258 lbs, which is down from my all time high of 272 4 weeks ago. Yes I'm on a diet. Despite being as big as I am I think I carry my weight quite well, in that I dont look like Fat Albert. I dont have a belly that hangs below my shirts or anything like that. Still, I enjoy food, I would never lie about that, and I have never tried to diet before because I've never felt the need to, and despite my size I am still active in sports etc...
However In the past couple of months, my wife has been making changes simply to eat healthier, as a result she has lost quite a bit of weight, not even something she was attempting, just a positive side effect. She is now down to the slender size she was over 10 years ago when we were dating, and I figure the least I can do is give it a shot. The good news is I still have a high metabolism, and my diet is not that rigorous. I have stuck with it for a month, and feel now I have the confidence to go the rest of the way. If all goes according to plan, By December of this year, I should be to my goal of 190, which is just right for my large frame. Still if you are happy where you are good for you, I would never put someone down for being too heavy. But as for me, any encouragement is appreciated as I've stated I've never ventured down the weight loss path before, but I have to admit even though I am still in the early stages, it feels pretty good.
There has never been a "Scientifically Accurate" Dinosaur portrayed on any Television Show, Movie, or Documentary. Only what the human imagination can conceive, and I'm ok with that.
